An organization called Moms Demand Action is now demanding that Michigan lawmakers stand down on a new bill.

The group, made up of moms who have lost a love one to gun violence, is urging Michigan lawmakers to shoot down a bill that would allow guns in places like stadiums, churches and schools.

"I think that all of the data shows that access to firearms is the biggest predictor of violence and I don't believe guns have a place especially in and around our schools and our children," said Nicole Bedi, Moms Demand Action.

Gov. Rick Snyder has already stated publicly he plans to veto the bills in its current form.
